New York City doesn’t allow any guns for private citizens. It’s not just airguns. Stores won’t even ship BB guns there. I can kinda see their point on that in Manhattan. They can’t have people firing air rifles out the window of their 50th floor apartments and there is nowhere safe to shoot anywhere in the city. 

They are allowed outside the 5 boroughs though (apart from Yonkers). 

I couldn’t get the link to work so please can you tell us what it relates to? I.e. Is someone trying to introduce federal legislation to restrict air gun sales? 

If so, was there an event that prompted the sudden interest? I don’t watch the news that often but I can’t recall seeing anything about criminals using air guns to commit murders in large numbers. My PCP guns all seem entirely unsuitable for drive-by shootings and given the easy availability of powder burners across the country, it’s hard to believe air guns have become a gang-bangers tool of choice.

When I saw the new Evanix Rex pistol in 9mm and 45 cal, my first thought was that the anti-gun people will use that as “exhibit A” one day. “Exhibit B” would be the 9mm Max in semi or full auto.
